the first polls close tomorrow night. at this moment we're awaiting the president at a rally in columbus, ohio, with the boss performing right now. not to be outdone, mitt romney has an event in columbus himself just a few hours from now featuring the marshall tucker band. tough choice there for columbus voters. and if the polls are any indication, america is split down the middle in our new poll. the president just edges romney 48% to 47% among likely voters. well within the margin of error. another look at polls confirms this race is pretty tight. with that in mind, the final day of campaigning is a whirlwind tour. mitt romney is at his second event in virginia today. and he said real change will begin with his victory tomorrow. >> the question of this election comes down to this. do you want four more years of the last four years? or do you want real change? >> virginia of course a state that mitt romney desperately wanted to have locked up months ago. the old dominion very tight. but it is far from the only tossup state and it was at a massive 18,000 strong rally at madison, wisconsi

. >> are you ready to go? >> thank you so very much. [ music playing ] >> hello columbus! >> hello ohio! >> what a welcome. thank you. thank you so much. what a great virginia welcome. >> hello iowa! >> anybody wants to know where the energy is, if anyone that is following politics wants to know where the energy is, come right here in this room. >> the first election results are in tonight and it is a tie. president obama and mitt romney each received 5 votes a piece in new hampshire. the small town's polls opened after midnight every election year, a tradition since 1968. the tie was a historical first. officials in new york and in new jersey are taking steps to try to make sure residents impacted by superstorm sandy get a chance to vote tomorrow. you are looking at after math of the storm. in one county ballots were delivered to shelters today. the governor allowed people to vote tomorrow at any polling place in the state. election officials in contra costa county are already hard at work with the thousands of mail in ballots. kron 4's justine waldman has more. >> reporter: the votes
cleveland. will carry perhaps the core of columbus and will carry cincinnati. you have to look at the exurbs to see what happens there. these are places the republican can be counted on to get 60 to 70% of the vote. does the democrat cut into that margin by two or three or four points or not? or use the urban vote come up, city core vote come up three or four points to outweigh that. a couple of places to look interesting. if you go to ohio's earn border, you're talking coal country. as you know governor romney really pushed the coal issue pretty hard. we're talking about some issues like jefferson county ohio, which is where steubenville is, obama won that race by 76 votes i believe last time. watch for that to see if it flips back. i suspect it will go over into the red column or the other end of the state, go to defiance. defiance is republican country. there is general motors plant there though. will the auto bailout pay off there? remember defiance is where governor romney first made his comments about jeep jobs going to china. jon: ohio could be a long night there. what about new hamps
have lowered our unemployment rate in lincoln county, east of columbus, we're 5.7% that is done from a local perspective, done went with governor kasich and company building private public partnerships become to what previous president reagan said, government is not the solution it is the problem. there are things that government is good for, things that are not, private sector steps in they are the ones that create the jobs. neil: i mention it, but, you never led in any of those polls, have you been close but never led do you worry about that? >> the numbers are so close. >> i hear you. >> that means add or take 3%. neil: a grain of salt. neil: mayor, let me ask you something in early voting results. in ohio, i checked this out, that busy early voting, very impressive for democrats not as many this go round, about 230, 240,000 fewer democrats opting for early votinn, 7,000 more republicans that does not 19 thameanthe race goes against des but it hints of a big battle in at least ohio. >> i can't tell you. what is going on in ohio, but here in wisconsin, we have seen in madison and d
's bring in kelly o'donnell. she is standing by this columbus, ohio, this morning. kelly, ohio was the state everyone was looking at. it was the one that everybody said all eyes there and we'll know who will be the next president. how did it play out last night? >> it certainly got tense at sometimes, willie. certainly voters throughout the day when we were polling places, you could really tell they had a sense that they had a big role to play. as the evening went, there was almost a bit of surprise at how early it was called. the officials here at the state house had been telling us be prepared for a late night. it could even go into the late counting of provisional ballots that would happen later this month. but that was not to be. the models that everyone was using to forecast this put ohio in the president's column and then there was a wait a minute moment where the romney campaign was not satisfied that enough votes had been counted yet. they felt there was potential to close the gap and overtake the president in some precincts they thought were going to go their way. ther
reasons. number one, secretary of state john houston in columbus would tell you that there is 220,000 fewer he democratic votes in early voting and 30,000 more republican votes. that means there is a 250,000 vote flip which is the margin by which obama won ohio in 2008. secondly, ohio is a republican state. 20 of the last 24 years we had republican governors. the legislature is overwhelmingly republican. every elected member of the supreme court of ohio is republican. 75% of elected officials in 88 counties are republicans. and thirdly, by independent voting measures, 10% to 15% of independent voters in ohio are going to vote for mitt romney. and also the catholic church when i go to saint sin vent in kenwood in since is national the minister is telling us vote for religious freedom. vote for the biblical definition of marriage. vote for life. there is half a million catholics energized in south, ohio, to pull the lever for mitt romney. mitt romney will win, ohio, and is going to win ohio easily. >> sean: wisconsin? >> wisconsin will go for romney because what walker did and what
. >>> president obama getting ready to speak at a rally in columbus, ohio. we'll go there when we see him. meanwhile, we're going to quickly which can in on three of the battleground states that we expect potentially decide this presidential election. let's start with ohio. its 18 electoral votes are crucial. you've heard it a million times by now. but history show that is republicans don't win the white house if they don't carry ohio. president obama won ohio back in 2008. george bush barely carried ohio in 2004. cnn's martin savidge joins us from cleveland. early voting, martin, very important for the president. how's it looking where you are in cleveland right now? >> reporter: well, at least the cnn poll of the early voters seem to be going very much in president obama's favor. let me point out something here. the early voting has finally come to an end in the state of ohio. the reason i say finally is it began october 2nd. it ended at 2:00 this afternoon. the complete tallies for the state are not up. but up until friday, 1.6 million early votes were cast. of that, 1.1 million were a
, columbus, ohio. >>> nightmare scenario, ron. all right, thank you. >>> well, 2012 presidential election already made history with a record number of early voters. about 46 million americans, more than one out of every three voters, cast an early ballot this year. our latest polling shows president obama has a narrow three-point lead among those who voted before today. >>> and, of course, there are also 33 senate races to be decided today in addition to the presidential race. among the highest profile races, the one in massachusetts between democrat elizabeth warren and incumbent scott brown, two former governors are facing off in virginia. a democrat, tim kaine, taking on republican george allen. in missouri, claire mccaskill faces republican todd akin. the race, remember, gained national attention after akin's comments about rape and pregnancy. >>> on top of that, several hot button social issues on the ballot for voters to decide. gay marriage is on the ballot in four states. maryland, maine, washington, and minnesota. immigration questions will be answered in several states as well i
heavily for mitt romney. what we need to watch on election night is columbus, where franklin county is, because we've been seeing the romney campaign campaign very heavily in central ohio in and around columbus. we're going to see president obama go there on friday. that's the area that could make up the difference come election night. >> okay. james peterson, last thought here. there is a pattern now of real dishonesty on the part of the romney campaign ads. they're out there saying that romney's been accused of outlawing birth control, contraception. nobody's ever accused him of that. they've said that he's not supporting the right of women to have it covered in their health plans. why are they putting out these desperate ads like jeep's going to china and women are under attack for buying birth control pills? i mean, it's an absurdity. who would be so uninformed as to believe these ads? >> well, chris, that's a different question. there are such a thing as uninformed voters and that's fine, that's part of our process. but this is the silly season. you know this, chris. you've studie
? it probably does. we'll go live to the site of the president's event this morning near columbus. there are more than just two guys running for office. house republicans could actually pick up a few seats on tuesday. we'll talk to the gop's man in charge of holding on to the house and the guy who predicted this could happen more than two years ago. november 2, 2012. this is the daily rundown. i'm chuck todd. let's get to my first read of the morning. four days after one of the worst storms ever to hit the country residents are reeling from sandy's impact. according to an early estimate from ploody's analytic the damage will approach $50 billion including property damage and loss of economic aft ty. more than 3.5 home owners and businesses are facing a day without power. the good news the number keeps coming down but there are still millions without power and then new york, staten island where at least 90 people were killed. the situation is particularly grim and residents are still cold, hungry, without power and supplies. they now feel a profound sense of loss and are getting in
of enthusiasm. i was with the president near columbus, ohio, on thursday. he has tremendous bounce in his step, tremendous confidence of people, all kinds of people were walking up. saw. there were old people, young people, black people, latinos. every time of person that's an american who is coming to that rally. people were bringing their children, taking them out of school because it was such an event. it was very, very moving to see the type of event that attended that event and i think that's the kind of deep-seeded enthusiasm that is going to carry the day in ohio. are the voters, are the residents when you visit them -- do they bring up the automobile fiasco that romney has gotten himself into? frin, this is ohio senator rob portman who was asked about the lies today and here's his response. >> the fact is, we now make jeeps in toledo, ohio, that we're proud to send to china, to asia. if they are going to start production facilities overseas, we're going to lose it here. that's all the ad said. >> what are the folks on the ground -- what are the residents of ohio saying to you? what do
every one, the latest came out this morning in the columbus dispatch. one thing that is clear, we have a very, very large lead among voters who have voted early. we are going to go into election day with a significant lead. and so, you know, we -- they can spin it any way they want. i am looking at cold, hard data, who is showing up, who is casting ballots and in states like ohio, iowa, nevada, florida, we are doing very, very well. what they are doing is comparing this to 2008 and you and i have thish this discussion, i am not suggesting we will win by the same margin of 2008. they are comparing themselves to john mccain with no ground operation in many of these states. so they will do better than mechanic cane did. we may not do as well as we did in 2008, but we are doing well enough to win this race. >> chris: in florida, where president obama is down by more than a point in the polls. and yet, you are advertising by the campaign there, in florida. why not in the state you must win? >> first of all, we feel very competitive in the state of florida. there have been a spate of polls i
. columbus, ohio, this afternoon. he ends his campaign in des moines, iowa, tonight where he gets joined by the first lady. mitt romney's final day also is about the narrow path he's trying to get to 270. it's florida, then virginia and new hampshire, states he needs along with either ohio and pennsylvania to get to that magic number of 270. the two campaigns both believe the fundamentals are in place for victory. >> for governor romney to win states like ohio, iowa, north carolina, he's going to have to carry election day by a huge mar margin. >> there's an intensity factor on the side of the republicans. there's a significant gap. we see it on the ground. we see it when people are knocking on the doors. >> both men are laying out their closing arguments. the final rallies in 2008 drew crowds of 60,000 and 80,000. last night in aurora, colorado, it was 20,000 supporters who heard the president argue this election is ultimately about character. >> part of a presidential race is about policy. but part of it's about trust. you may be frustrated sometimes by the pace of change. guess what?
the president's base supporters-- young people, african americans in cleveland and columbus-- then you could see a much closer race at least in ohio than the public polls show. we should say because we haven't mentioned yet,if at happens given the way they count protestants in the state -- provisional ballots and absentee ballots we may not know. >> that would be november 17. >> and we could have a situation where he wins the three southern states and colorado and ohio are laying out there. >> which means we have to be looking closely at virginia. virginia early tomorrow evening the polls will close and if virginia goes for romney we could be in for a very long night. >> i absolutely agree because in some ways bain and the auto bailout asidevirginia is tougr state for governor romney because it has lots of young people, lots of suburban voters who are on social issues, i think that's the one place where there are women's issues their agenda has worked well and hispanics and african americans so if governor romney wins that state it mean he is will be strong we are the northern virginia voters w
. and very soon he will be rallying the crowds in columbus, getting a boost from some a-list celebrities. meantime, mitt romney, he is traveling up the eastern seaboard with stops in florida, ohio, virginia, and, of course, new hampshire. and during the next hour we will take you live to his event in fairfax, virginia. speaking of mitt romney, he's already making his case in lynchburg and jim acosta son the campaign trail with him. hey, jim. >> reporter: with a slew of new battleground state polls showing mitt romney trailing president obama only slightly on this day before election day, the gop nominee is making his closing argument to voters. at a campaign stop here in virginia, and earlier this morning in florida, romney warned the crowd that the country could be in store for another recession and potentially another debt ceiling crisis if mr. obama gets another four years in office. romney is trying to make the case that he's the leader that can bring the country together. here's what he had to say? >> when i'm elected, the economy and the american jobs are likely to still be very st
other parts of the country. still, though, a columbus dispatch poll shows the state tied within the margin of error. with their voices strained from around the clock campaigning, both candidates spent the eve of the election offering closing arguments across a combined seven key states. governor romney focusing on three that could help him have the easiest path to 270 electoral votes. he ended in manchester, new hampshire, where his campaign launched nearly a year and a half ago. >> this is a special moment for ann and for me because this is where our campaign began. you got this campaign started a year and a half ago at the farm. your primary vote put me on the path to win the republican nomination and tomorrow your votes and your work right here in new hampshire will help me become the next president of the united states. >> the president spent his final hours on the campaign trail in three midwestern states that could deliver him a second term. even without winning florida, virginia or north carolina, the final campaign of his political career, president obama returned to the
pulling into this columbus, ohio, hangar and soon after we were all back on the plane. we're headed to new hampshire. headed to new hampshire where his candidacy began for a rally lasting past midnight. >> this is where our campaign began. you got it started a year and a half ago. >> reporter: we were standing right there as he worked his last rope line as a candidate but now to us for that giant bear hug. if anyone is revealing the rigors, it is ann overcome last night by the support. >> i'm so moved. so emotional to have this kind of reception from ohio, a state that is going to make the next president of the united states. [ cheers ] >> reporter: in the final hours romney is sticking to his playbook. >> it's all coming together today. >> reporter: all about the economy, pushing his vision of lower taxes and working on his ipad on tonight's speech and one more stop, pennsylvania, once considered a long shot now they believe within reach and unexpected moment in pittsburgh, a parking garage filled with supporters. the governor with his hand to his heart and a wave telling abc news afterwa
, columbus, up to detroit. a solid line of rain stretches from the eastern great lakes into western pennsylvania, almost into oakland and garrett county. it will be there in the next hour or so. we expect rain to keep moving east tonight, especially -- reaching the baltimore area close to midnight. right over toward baltimore and the western shore of the bay by about midnight or so. the rain starts to change over to some snow overnight and there could be a light accumulation. probably some rain year for the tuesday morning rush-hour in and showers will continue pressing east and looks like the skies will clear up as we head toward lunch time and into the afternoon hours. 35-bit before the love tonight, but the clouds will shift to the northwest and that dusty northwest breeze will bring in cooler air. even though we will see sunshine tomorrow afternoon and wednesday, it will not warm up a lot. the air mass behind that front is quite chilly. the front hangs up off the carolina coast and it may bring more clouds into the region thursday afternoon and may be a shower on the eastern sho
